Reardan Shoreline Master Program

On April 5, 2017, we provided the city of Reardan with required and recommended changes to the its proposed Shoreline Master Program (SMP) comprehensive update. The changes are based on our review of whether the proposed update complies with state laws and rules, and a public comment period held August 17 through September 19, 2016.

We mailed and emailed interested parties about public comment period. We also issued a news release to encourage additional public participation and comment. We received one comment letter from a citizen. The public comment and municipality's responses have been incorporated into Attachment: A Findings and Conclusions (below).

Lincoln County, along with Reardon and Odessa, formed a coalition to pursue a regional update to their Shoreline Master Programs. The regional comprehensive update revises the three jurisdiction's existing SMPs including the goals, policies, regulations, shoreline environment designations, and administrative procedures and definitions. This updated master program increases protection and restoration of habitat and water quality, provides more certainty for development, and improves public access and recreational opportunities.

We have sent the required and recommended changes to the Reardan for review and response. The city may agree to these changes or offer alternative language. Final  approval will occur when we agree on language that meets state requirements.
